NOTE: You may be reading this from a location other than Evanston, IL. I’d urge you to continue reading if you like dining out. Even though I’m talking about a local restaurant, the tactics outlined here are applicable anywhere you choose to eat yummy food!
I could sit around and tell you that Found Kitchen and Social House's menu is filled with healthy, low-calorie options but that would be the biggest lie ever. It’s not. And that's not why people come here anyway. Found is one of the top restaurants in Evanston and the North Shore and was written up in the New York Times, for crying out loud. You don't get there by staying away from butter. The food is incredibly delicious because of their use of the best, richest, yummiest (and local!!) ingredients. So instead of saying, “You should order this and you can order that but maybe stay away from xyz,” I am going to say: Order anything from the menu. Seriously. Anything. Even if you are currently losing weight. “Izzy, how the F could I do that and still lose weight?!” you scream? So glad you asked.
Here is how you can have a delightful experience at Found without feeling deprived:
I can't recommend Found enough but regardless of where you go, go armed with a handful of tactics you can use so you can thoroughly enjoy yourself and leave happy knowing you stuck to your plan with your ultimate goals in mind.
